ARIA DJ Of The Week: Tom Budin

October 15, 2018

Get to know the Sydney DJ/producer.

With over 15 million plays worldwide, the 22-year-old powerhouse Tom Budin continues to makes huge waves in both the Australian and international dance music scenes. In the time Tom has been producing, he has achieved a substantial global following signing tracks to labels like Ultra Music, Interscope Records, Armada, Heldeep, Hexagon, TMRW Music, Strange Fruits and more. Tom has consistently proven his production skill set over a variety of releases that have achieved both national and international acclaim from artists such as Oliver Heldens, David Guetta, Afrojack, Dillon Francis, Jauz, Diplo and more.

Before Tom was even old enough to get into a club, he had already beaten the competition in both the Zedd 'Clarity' remix competition, as well as The Bloody Beetroots 'The Beat' remix competition, getting his tracks onto Ultra Music as well as Interscope Records by the ripe old age of 16.

Moving into the present, Tom’s single 'X With U' (featuring Luciana) has once again proven his ability to shake down the international dance music scene, being the first independent Australian release ever to hit number 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart (US). Tom’s hit record 'Right Now' featuring DLMT has also caused quite a stir amassing close to a million streams in just over 3 months after its initial debut on Spotify. Budin is no stranger to the Australian music scene either, releasing several top 10 tracks ranging from 'Mike Baird' the NSW lockouts protest soundtrack, to his later release 'Freek', which earned a significant amount of praise among national and international DJs.

Tom sets the bar high with a unique sound that is all about connecting with the listeners through high-energy releases, uplifting melodies, a fat low end that makes the ground shake. Welcome to the future forefront of Australian Dance Music.
